To prevent retention: Avodart (dutasteride) physically shrinks your prostate gland and is typically best suited for men with larger glands (>30 cc) and urinary obstruction. Avodart serves patients well by preventing the need for surgery (TURP) in patients with large glands who are at risk for urinary retention. Flomax+Dutasteride work better together than either alone in men with large glands. Hope this is helpful.

Rx for BPH: When is avodart indicated for BPH? Most people I know just take flomax alone? ANS: When Flomax alone does not work. It will take months for max effect. May be cheaper one but don't know about Canada. Usually added when Flomax is not enough.
